The other two venues for season 5 are Chennai (January 20-24) and Lucknow (Jan 25-28)," the statement read.

Bengaluru Raptors were scheduled to host the last leg of the league from February 5 to 9 at the Sree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium. However, the franchise said in a series of tweets on Thursday that it won't be able to do so due to unavailability of the stadium.
